Founder Wende Fugate hand-makes each item using natural ingredients and pure essential oils to create high-quality products like their popular Room and Linen Spray (available in a variety of gentle scents) and cold process soaps that are harder and last longer than hot process soaps.

Rare Bird is committed to using organic and local ingredients whenever possible, ensuring that your purchase not only pampers your body and your senses, but supports this small, family business and our local community.
